Founded in 1983, Sunrise House is a residential treatment center founded on the principal of treating individuals and families suffering from the affects of substance abuse and chemical dependency. The program accepts adolescents and adults suffering from substance abuse and chemical dependency issues.

CEO of Sunrise House, Philip Horowitz, PhD., is a Clinical Psychologist. He was previously employed by Saint Clare's Hospital and has authored numerous publications in the health and chemical dependency fields. Dr. William C. Rainer, MD, Chief Medical Officer has been with the program since 1995 and holds a specialty certification from the American Society of Addiction Medicine. Kieran Ayre, LCSW, is the Chief Clinical Officer of Sunrise House. He is a licensed social worker and has 17 years experience working with children and adults. He is a board certified alcohol and drug counselor for the state of New Jersey. The program is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Sunrise House operates its program based on the philosophy that recovery and sobriety begins with healthy relationships and a supportive setting. The program utilizes a 12 Step Recovery and group therapy to assist clients in the recovery process. The Sunrise House program also strongly believes that substance abuse and dependency is a disease affecting the entire family and not just the patient. Therefore the program also includes a family program which educates the family on how to help in the recovery process and how to avoid "enabling" the patient. Counselors for the Sunrise House stay in contact with the families throughout the program and treatment period.

Sunrise House is located on a 22 acre campus in Lafayette, New Jersey and also operates a half-way home in Franklin, New Jersey.
